Tu, Wed, Fri, Sat and Sun they host many events. Website is easily navigable. Rentals are available and they hold special 'school's out' events on weekdays without school.
Be sure to read reviews of past participants regarding the pools. Some community ed. pools are held at facilities that cater to adults and they are cold! The best pools are ones designed for kids or therapeutic pools since they keep their water and air temps super warm.

This is where I took my daughter. It gets my vote. During the school year on Mondays from 1-3pm free open swim is offered to current customers. Summer programs consist of once-a-week lessons, everyday lessons, afternoon camps, and reduced rate private lessons. By far, the most economical in the southern suburbs. Their pools are 90+ degrees. Their instructors have over 40 hours of training and love their jobs. They are so articulate, the one time my father's daughter came up from Venezuela and took her into the pool, he understood the swim class activities perfectly...and he still doesn't speak English.
Community Education Classes:
Check through your local school district for a catalog of activities which are tailored to different physical and educational goals, interests, and age participants. It's a great and economical resource for structured learning and play.
